Penn Radiology Oncologic Imaging Essentials
Penn Radiology responds to the constant challenge of Cancer imaging with Oncologic Imaging Essentials. This activity includes a review of the diagnostic imaging evaluation of common tumors, including breast, head and neck, thoracic and abdominal malignancies. Current state of the art modalities used for oncologic imaging, including CT, MRI, ultrasound, PET-CT and digital mammography will be discussed. Emphasis is placed on the role of imaging in staging, treatment and follow up in order to optimize care of oncologic patients.
Credit Hours: 18 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™, which are all applicable to SA- CME requirements for Maintenance of Certification.
Multimodality review: MR, CT, Ultrasound, PET and Tomo. 18 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
- Thyroid cancer
- orbital neoplasia
- head and neck cancer
- GI and GU tumors
- abdominal incidentalomas
- prostate cancer
- breast screening
- high risk lesions
- GYN malignancies
- CT colonography
- FDG PET-CT
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Discuss the roles of digital breast tomosynthesis and screening breast MR imaging for the detection of breast carcinoma
- Apply the ACR appropriateness criteria for the management of gynecomastia, benign disease, and male breast cancer
- Identify the imaging findings in the diagnosis and staging of head and neck, esophageal, gastric, colonic, gynecological and genitourinary tract tumors
- Describe the normal and abnormal postoperative appearance following oncologic surgery for GI and GU tract tumors
- Optimize abdominal CT colonography protocols to diagnose colon carcinoma
- Discuss current accepted and reimbursed indications for FDG PET/CT in the surveillance of cancer patients
- Explain how to manage incidental findings and avoid pitfalls on PET CT and CT colonography exams
- Apply the PET/CT-based tumor response assessment including Deauville, PERCIST and WHO criteria
- Solve imaging problems related to the use of MR imaging for head and neck cancers
The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of radiologists and other physicians involved in the treatment of patients requiring the use of imaging.
